Lord'lnverchapel Pokes Fun n At Diplomats in Meeting Press The new British Ambassador to Washington yesterday put on a comedy performance which drew gales of laughter and app' pi.s? from veteran newsmen who tilled every available seat at the National Press Club to see the envoy in his first “formal” public appearance in this country. Avoiding topics related to world affairs, Lord Inverchapel frequently | went "off the record” in his 30 ! minute address, which included a burlesque reading of a typical dip i lomatic pronouncement—"the usual ambassadorial guff”—and a can | did admission that he carried an extra pair of false teeth in his “little black bag.” Only in his opening remarks did the Ambassador touch on serious matters, referring to the need for “good faith” between Britain and America. Lord Inverchapel said there had been times when, as an observer, he had been saddened by an evident lack of such mutual faith. The remedy, he suggested, lies in "getting to know more about each other.” Lord Inverchapel said he had known ambassadors all his life and did not “think much of them,” add ing: “I know you don’t, either. They wear spats and are always running around with little black bags trying to look mysterious and important.” The envoy declared he had no spats. “I propose, however, to ac- ■ cept a pair which has just been offered me by the president of your club.” he said. ‘‘I shall wear them If you Insist, but only if you Insist, and I want you to understand I have none now. I do have a little black bag—some one gave it to me— but if you care to look into it you will find only a few pipes and an, alternate set of teeth.” Lord Iverchapel told the press1 corps he was “not afraid of it." Looking around at a battery of British Embassy personnel seated with him at the head table, the Ambassador said: "The only peo ple here who are afraid are my advisers. I may say I think there are rather too many of them.” In reply to questions from the floor at the conclusion of his speech, Lord Inverchapel announced he in tended to join an Indian tribe if in vited "because I only need feathers to look like a chief.” He also said he believed Britain and America would be able to co-operate success fully with Russia in the mainte nance of peace. Asked whether an American loan would really help Britain, the Am bassador replied, “You betcha!” PUBLIC BOOMS for (BANQUETS, WEDDINGS, RECEPTIONS, MEETINGS.
